The Sitecore Symposium 2020, is the largest Sitecore annual event, and the best place to learn about Sitecore strategies, tactics, advancements, new products and product updates in 2020.

It has been revealed that the Sitecore Symposium 2020 will be held virtually online from the 26th to the 28th of October 2020.

The theme for Sitecore Symposium 2020 is Moments That Make Experiences, focusing on brand moment experiences in the customer journey.

What To Expect

After a big 2019 with keynote speaker Magic Johnson, we can only assume Sitecore Symposium 2020 will be bigger and better than ever. Be prepared to learn more than ever before, as we're predicting a jam-packed schedule, for marketers and developers alike, and big insights into the future of Sitecore, personalization and digital transformation. We're expecting a lot of insight into the product advancements planned for 2020 as well as insight into new products that marketers will salivate over.

Why Attend?

The Sitecore Symposium is a premiere digital marketing event. It is the best place to learn about the latest product and technology advancements that Sitecore are going to release over the next year and beyond. Sitecore reveals exclusive information at the Symposium for the first time, so you'll learn all the exclusive details as soon as they're announced, rather than learning them second or third-hand. This is a must for getting ahead of the game and passing on all the details to your customers (if you're a partner).

You'll learn more than ever before. The Symposium is jam-packed with information. You'll typically learn more in the 3 days there, than you would in a year. Listening to the keynote speakers, hearing the Sitecore experts talk about specific topics on hundreds of different topics including marketing, development, commerce and optimization, as well as chatting with the thousands of other Sitecore developers, marketers, customers and MVPs that attend is an invaluable way to increase your knowledge of Sitecore.

Getting Approval To Attend The Symposium

The first step to attending the Sitecore Symposium 2020, is having your manager approve your online attendance. Most managers will want to know why you want to attend, how your attendance will benefit the business, and how much it will cost. Here's a list of information to prepare before speaking to your manager:
